Promoting A Positive Business Environment

Utilization of Minority- And Woman-Owned Business Enterprises
Turner is committed to expanding the opportunities available to minority and women owned businesses (M/WBEs). Our objective is to improve the economic viability of these growing firms through outreach and education as well as through direct partnership; we strive for 20% M/WBE participation company-wide
. Since 1979, total awards to M/WBEs on our projects and involvement with M/WBE joint venture partnerships has exceeded $20 billion. The company has been recognized nationwide-and has received more than 100 awards-for leadership in promotion and professional mentorship of such businesses.

Turner School of Construction Management 
In an effort to promote M/WBEs and expand the opportunities available to growing businesses, Turner developed a construction management training program in 1969. Each eight-week course is taught by Turner staff and includes such topics as risk management, construction estimating, safety and effective marketing. The program has helped attendees build networks, establish fruitful joint ventures win contracts with Turner and other industry leaders and form long-term business relationships.

Due to its  success rate, many Turner offices have adopted this program. It is now offered in more than 30 cities and has graduated more than 30,000 students since 1969.
